Nowadays, we often don’t get a good night’s sleep because of so many distractions we are exposed to throughout the day, such as, computers, smart phones, TV, etc. In other words, modern technology is the biggest enemy of a restful night. What I suggest is to switch off all technology devices at least an hour before bedtime, and instead read a book or favourite magazine. But before doing so, what I like is a little bedtime ritual, at least once a week. I also include one of the following steps every night before going to bed. In my bedtime ritual I include aromatherapy as a way to induce a better sleep. I don’t know whether it’s all just the placebo effect, but it does work on me, so that’s what really matters, right?
The first step is taking a shower using Aromatherapy Associates Relax Deep Bath & Shower Oil. It has the most gorgeous smell in the whole world and it truly is a calming and very relaxing scent. It’s made with essential oils of Camomile, Vetivert, and Sandalwood. It reminds me of how a pine forest smells, especially after a heavy rain. You can either pour 1 capful to your bath or massage it into your body if taking a shower. After this step I already feel less stressed and more sleepy.
The second step is lightning up this works Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle with Roman Chamomile and Lavender essential oils. This is the most beautifully scented candle I’ve ever owned and I am obsessed with candles (obviously the non-toxic ones). I wish I could burn it all day long because it’s that brilliant.
The third step is putting some this works Deep Sleep Night Oil on my body, which has a very similar scent to the Aromatherapy Associates Relax Deep Bath & Shower Oil mentioned above, since it contains Camomile and Vetivert essential oils. The warmth of your body activates the smell, so it stays with you until the morning.
The fourth step is spritzing my bed linen with this works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, which has a very pleasant scent of Lavender and Vetivert and very light, non-greasy texture. I actually ran out of it recently since I had the small version of it (this works The Dream Team Duo), so what I did was mixing few drops of Aromatherapy Associates Relax Deep Bath & Shower Oil with water in the little empty bottle I was left with.
The last step is rolling some this works Deep Sleep Stress Less on my wrists or a tissue, and breathing it in deeply. It contains Eucalyptus essential oil, which clears your nasal passage, so you can breathe deeply and unwind. Along with the Eucalyptus oil it also contains antiseptic Frankincense and relaxing Lavender essential oils.
Now all that’s left is to lay down, read whatever you like most, and then go to sleep. Ahhh, finally a restful night.
